6:19 pm
our surf. mainly clear skies right now. but we will find the clouds thickening overnight. temperatures mainly in the mid-30s to low 40s for overnight low. so hour by hour we go on future weather. i want to stop the clock at 4:00 a.m. as the incident moved through, it will try and bring a sprinkle to points to the north. but we're not talking about widespread rain fall. it's really just a mixture of sun and clouds throughout the day. and temperatures very close to average in the afternoon. but, again, this front will kick up our surf. we do have a high surf warning that will go into effect at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning lasting through 9:00 p.m. where this long period west northwesterly swell could have breakers, anywhere from 23 to 28 feet high, and that combined with strong rip currents and the risk
